  1. You're right, if you can take notes and still get through all questions it does help significantly especially on questions that ask you to look back at specific lines. It all comes down to how good of a note taker you are and how fast you can read while still grasping what you read. But for me personally I prefer to just take mental note of the general structure of the passage and the main arguments and it usually works fine for me. I was able to get through all questions except the last question using this method on my last sitting. It is worth mentioning my LSAT scoring is not superior by any means. I range between 154-158, however, if i could get through more then two logic games in the allotted time it would be significantly higher. I do pretty well on the other sections.
  2. Well they explicitly tell you not to re-read anything over in the prep books during the LR section but then again they also tell you to take notes on the RC section which was a disaster for me after my first write. I did say I was speaking from personal experience and I'm pretty sure everyone is capable of thinking for themselves as after all they are university students not elementary students and will find through self study what does and does not work for them. I never once said I was speaking on behalf of everyone.
  3. Taking notes is not wise because of the time constraint. I can't get through all the questions in RC if I scribble in the margins. All you can do is try and take mental note of what the general arguments and facts are in each paragraph and take note of how the passage is structured. For LR you have enough time to read slowly and carefully and you should do this but don't re-read anything as it eats up to much time, you must guess if you still are drawing a blank after a careful read and move on. If you do this you should have anywhere from 5 to 9 minutes at the end to go over the ones you guessed on in LR. Make sure you mark them so you can easily find them.
  4. I don't have a definitive or even partial answer to this response, however, I know at schools like U of S and U of M there is a strong preference for in province applicants so in that case offers would most likely go to those applicants. I believe these schools are like this because they are the only law schools in their respective provinces where as AB has two schools and at that two schools with completely different philosophies and selection criteria.
  5. Accepted today, L2: 3.87 LSAT: 154 I've already been accepted to my first choice in my hometown. Will be declining.
  6. Ha, I decided to go over and read my post and I can see where you are coming from. But I just meant it can't be established.
  7. Maybe, but there are some applicants who got admitted who have weaker apps then some of the people yet to get an offer based on pure stats. Not including myself as i have a very similar index score to the people I'm referring to. I would guess you are right but there is evidence to argue for the otherside. That's why I said what I said. I think your reading to much into things.
  8. If your lsat were two points higher you'd probably be in by now. Two people have gotten in with 3.75+ and a 156 lsat at the end of feb
  9. The first round is over. It was confirmed by the administration. Whether or not they pick the most qualified applicants in the first round is not ascertainable.
  10. Yeah, I will have a full four years of courses after this term but I haven't fulfilled the requirements for the degree. I need to go back for a full term and then a half course load term to get the 400 level requirement. U of A isn't so big on whether you have completed a degree. Some schools are and others aren't.
  11. Thanks. No worries, I'd rather know my chances were slim then be oblivious and waste money. Yeah, I think that's the last time I will apply to of U of C. But I might work on my softs for a school like TRU and it's just good to finish your degree.
